We are excited to announce the launch of the 3DM Brisbane Learning Community
2 year Learning Communities are the primary tool that 3DM Australasia use to help Christian leaders put Discipleship and Mission at the center of everything they do.
Here is a video about a 3DM Learning Community .... https://vimeo.com/39439537
Is a 2 year Learning Community just a bunch of conferences?
Put simply, no.
While there is nothing wrong with conferences, the famous speaker with the great story on the main stage isn’t going to come down and walk with you week by week, month by month, as you go to the places God is calling your community. Often, the outcome is that people go away with many pages of notes and good ideas but without having had the chance to reflect, discuss, plan and decide how to implement what has been learned.
A Learning Community, on the other hand, is a series of 3-day intenstives over 2 years with a team of 3-7 people from your church that incorporates main stage teaching and input with tactical training, expert coaching, and a chance to experience Missional Communities and Huddles. This all concludes with the creation of a six month plan that your team creates for your local ministry context. We recognise that every church leader and city is dfferent and your plan needs to reflect those nuances.
These intensives happen every six months, with four gatherings over a two year period. In addition, there is regular coaching on a Huddle conference-call for the Senior Leader.
This might sound like a significant investment of time over a two year period. It is. If it were possible to impart the skills, tools and vehicles necessary to achieve everything God is calling you to with a smaller investment of time, we’d do that. But after working with nearly a thousand churches in the United States, Europe, Australia and beyond, we know there is no short-circuiting the process.
Beyond a learning community
The relationship we establish with participants does not end once the 2 year cycle finishes. We continue to support and equip these churches through communities of practice; ongoing coaching and leaders’ gatherings. We also invite those who have been through the process to share their experience of implementing and innovating the principles in their contexts with new LC participants. Again, this is not about simply gaining more information, but about joining a movement where you can reflect, discuss, plan, be accountable and learn from one another.
Use the ticket option on this page to register your church for the Learning Community. We will then provide you with additional information for you to register individual team members.
